- Every Relationship is a DANCE, every dance is a RELATIONSHIP! – Ilona G

Are you ready to expand your capacity for LOVING, INTIMACY, CONNECTION and CREATIVITY? Argentine Tango is for YOU!

Tango is known as the most romantic and passionate social partner dance, with dazzling footwork and dramatic moves.  Yet, it is so much more! Argentine Tango is a beautiful metaphor for a conscious relationship and life itself – on and off the dance floor.  By celebrating masculine and feminine energies, Tango facilitates healing of the age-old struggle between genders, and becomes a powerful teacher of LIFE itself.

Ilona Glinarsky, a professional Argentine Tango instructor and a classically trained musician, combines her passion for teaching social partner dance with Life Coaching skills (USM, Spiritual Psychology program). Ilona encourages students to take lessons from the dance floor and apply them to every-day life using Argentine Tango as a tool for personal growth and transformation.

“I’m truly fortunate to have discovered Ilona’s intuitive and fun approach to the art of Argentine Tango. This “thing” I had always loved to watch, while in all honesty considering it “just another ballroom dance”. It is not until I jumped in with both feet, that I was able to discover that it holds, just under the surface, powerful secrets of the dynamics of human relationship. It isn’t news that the balance of masculine-feminine energies in modern urban culture has become slightly derailed. Years of feminist progress, a workplace changed by economic realities, and the new models of the family unit have subtly changed the way men and women see and relate to one another.  Although I hold no judgment on any of this, one way or another, yet it seems maybe something fundamental has been lost – it is that basic, undeniably powerful meeting of masculine power and feminine surrender.

It’s how we were made, like it or not, and the practice and experience of Argentine Tango shows a way of re-connecting with that old concept in a fun, gently respectful, and aesthetically beautiful context that is urgently important for the new man and the new woman. Tango does this in a visceral but charming old-school way. I’ll never forget Ilona’s instructions to forget what we have learned about “not invading another’s space”- that in Tango it’s not only permissible, but mandatory; so to do just THAT, do it in a loving and artistic way, and to have it welcomed with surrender and gratitude, is a huge lesson for the modern, “conscious” man.

I can’t speak for the women, of course, but the look on their faces, as they journey into a place of real trust, and allow themselves those essential “luxuries” of improvisation, lightness, and grace, says more than a volume of words. The whole thing is simply, like all great art, a great pleasure with a deeper value. I could go on and on, but all this talk is making me wanna dance instead!” – David Neal (musician, composer, arranger)
